C.G.P.A., Kerala appeals to all Central Government Pensioners
to donate liberally to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund

              The flash floods on account of unprecedented rains have unleashed devastation on the Himalayan Hill State of Uttarakhand. The magnitude of the tragedy is beyond measure. Countless houses and buildings along the banks of Alakananda and Bhagirathi were washed away. Number of people met with tragic death is reported to be shockingly inestimable. Stretches of roads and communication links have been totally destroyed. Thousands have been rendered houseless.

                As the magnitude and the enormity of the catastrophe continues to unfold, our Prime Minister has called upon the people of this country to donate generously to support their brethren who are the unfortunate and hapless victims of the vicissitudes caused, by the natural calamity. The Prime Minister’s appeal goes like this: 

1.      “At this moment, the affected people need our help to tide over the calamity that has fallen upon them to survive and to rebuild their lives. I request all citizens of India to stand with our distressed fellow-countrymen and actively participate in the national effort to support them at this difficult time.”

                  It needs no special emphasis and mention that Central Government Pensioners have an important and vital role to play in helping the victims of the national calamity. The secretariat of C.G.P.A. Kerala calls upon the entire community of pensioners to donate liberally to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. The District Units and Affiliates are requested to maximize the collection/donation and send it to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund directly under intimation to the Head Quarters.
